A recent photo of Johnny Depp posted on social media sparked concerns from fans.
However, the reason as to why he looks so different may have been unveiled.
It was reported by Empire last year the actor was set to star in Richard Says Goodbye.
The film is about a university professor who is given a life altering “terminal diagnosis” and turns to drink, drugs and smoking.
So, Johnny’s dramatic new look may be down to some serious method acting.
Some fans certainly think so.
Johnny Depp is losing weight for a role where he plays a terminally ill person = the media say he looks "unhealthy" because of drugs, alcohol etc.

What folk forget about #JohnnyDepp is that he's a method actor. Any way he looks (and possibly behaves) is probably for a role.
